How To Practice A Good Daily Life

To start with, let people be, I do this with self-deprecating humor.

Let go of anger, use anger management.

When I am low, rest, relax and do no harm.

Don’t vent anger, don’t scratch it.

Let go of self righteousness by being light hearted at best and calm, still silent (at worst).

Sometimes, I need more sleep, swear less, rest more, walk more and move more.

All the above habits help me feel more positive emotions and less negative ones.

I think about anger to learn how to control my own.

I imagine myself in a humorous situation as much as possible-express humor as much as possible and live as simple as possible without causing harm to myself or others.

Voluntary discomfort is for advanced people living a good life.

Work for change and challenging ways to live each day.

Eat as early as I can each day and fast as long as I can the rest of the day.

Collect being uncomfortable each day-meeting my goals, facing my fears each day.

Practice engaging people and connecting with others each day.

Let go of comforts like watching TV. I do not need TV, I want it. I let it go.

Practice philosophy, photography and writing each day.

My passive nature needs to be overcome at every turn.

I do live as much as I can each day.

Endurance is something left to someone advanced in living the good life.

Simplicity in lifestyle is best left to someone advanced in living a good life.

No car is best for me. I enjoy a work vehicle at my disposal, but prefer not to own my own.

I recommend people to stop buying things when they believe it is best for them.

To stop acting on desire is the best way to live a good life.

To be less of a consumer is my goal.

Constantly prepare for hardship. Because to let go of my fear of death, loss and hardship is the best way to be willing and able.

I need to face my personal fears: dying from an aneurism found by an ultrasound a few years ago.

I have little chance of this happening but it is my personal fear.

I need to find positive role models like older philosophers who believe in living life to the fullest within my limits.

I believe in living life to the fullest within my limits.

I believe in helping my family and friends to the best of my ability within my limits. Do no harm.

I practice internalizing my ways to live a full life because it does no harm to me or others.

I sometimes need to be rich and hard to myself and others when it is time to be responsible for myself or another.

I also need to stop certain habits because they harm me. I drink and eat in moderation for this reason.

I am growing older and accepting my new found limits.

I am more calmer, and less anxious, less sarcastic, less negative emotions and more positive emotions.

I am less complicated and more simple, in a good way.

To continue being more joyous, grateful and positive is part of my outcomes of living a good life.

Until one discovers this within, the outcomes are just symptoms of living a good life.

My philosophy proves my good life to myself, a better life is possible through my practice.

A long life and a good one is my goal.

For all these reasons, I recommend thinking about living a good life, after all, it is just putting into practice the ways I think love is to be practiced in a good life.

Drug Overdose, Victoria, British Columbia

Just a cursorily look into the drug problem in our city will say it is going downhill since 2010.

What have you seen in the last ten years.

Don’t you ever wonder about that siren you hear everyday.

How long has it been since you connected the dots and realized we have a fentanyl problem, a world drug problem, and much more pain and suffering than the public can even stand to hear about anymore?

Becoming aware of the problem is the first step.

That means stop numbing out about it.

Find ways to do no harm to yourself and others.

Then maybe people will begin to help people again.

International Overdose Awareness day is a global event that happens every year on 31st of August.

Their presence was made at the Ministry of Health on Friday, downtown.

Where were you and what are you doing about it?

The answer is non-violent and helping yourself first.

The problem is here to stay and that will be what is commonly called an ongoing problem that will have systemic effects upon society as a whole.

Chances are that you probably can’t even talk about it.

You probably don’t think it is your problem.

And if you do, you probably don’t know what to do next.

Don’t walk away, this is not going to either.

Awareness is key.

Please support the effort.

Aloneness

“The seed of wisdom.” Chogyam Trungpa
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ch%C3%B6gyam_Trungpa?wprov=sfti1

Solitude is beautiful.

But no one will escape loneliness without a teacher.

Become aware of what is behind the mask,

And help others become aware of it.

At times to run seems like the best solution.

Or to hide out with others.

Learning about solitude can teach you a thing or two about isolation and being lonely and being in that body all by yourself.

So, don’t think for one second you can hide any of it by wearing a mask.

But today, COVID-19 and ‘the mask’ is an important symbol of loneliness.

And more of us need to reach out to others with the tools of our survival: physical distancing,self-isolation, masks, gloves, even toilet paper.

No one ever said loneliness had to be just loneliness.

Sometimes it can be creative, curious, fun, associated with helping yourself and others by learning to ‘do no harm’.

Looking Out For Number One

It may appear a little surreal…

To do no harm, one need look no farther than them self.

It is a point of view that may be hard to read in certain circumstances.

Therefore, put yourself first, do no harm to yourself.

For example, maintain your health with the basic routine of looking after your sleep, exercise, work, nutrition, education…

In this sense, you are better able to respond when change and challenges arise in your life.

In this sense, you are doing less harm to others.

Personal Problems

apple.news/AH7OWSlvWSsKhFauI-WnxpQ

People make mistakes with their lives when they harm themselves and others.

When we decide to change and practice prevention, we may need to give up a lifestyle that contributed to our problem.

We may need to start over with less and with out as many privileges and responsibilities.

But rather than giving up and continuing to make a worse mistake, we get to live in a better way or not.

Our job is to keep changing and learning from our mistakes.

A Good Person

I just have to accept it.

I’m going to upset myself and others for the rest of my life.

All I have to do is not act on it.

‘Do no harm’ is a simple statement.

So is ‘the proper use of impressions’.

A child is born.

One who is willing and able to practice the above two statements and will live a better life.

He or she will learn to become a better person.

Most of us are fortunate to become and live better lives.

The challenge is to stick with it.

You may wish to change, but the goal is to ‘stick with it’.

Intelligent Ethics

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intellectual_disability

Why is the heart less important than the brain?

Why is a different brain better or worse than the brain I am using?

The stigma of an ineffective brain or an affective brain is just a disguise for a biased opinion.

The categorization of a disorder is only as bad or as good as the person using it.

Labels only serve to discredit the individual.

We are not an all or nothing proposition.

Intellectual superiority is truly an oxymoron or simply a descriptive phrase.

Reason is only one form of intelligence.

People are a composite of reason, emotion, physicality, belief, environment and genetics.

Loosely speaking, we are more than the sum of our parts.

We cooperate and collaborate to create good things.

Yet, there are more than angles and devils, a whole array of the spectrum exists.

To live the good life and use the proper use of impressions is perhaps only an ideal.

But for those that breathe, walk the earth with intention, practice, there is a way to be.

Seeing The Light

I need to visualize the short story, draw it, see or show it, even when I tell it.

Like a movie, like a story, this is life or is it the other way around?

Can a writer alter his trait?

The short story is in my beholding eye.

Imitation is art because you can show and tell it.

Life can only be expressed through the will.

A decision needs to be made to move foreword.

And some mistakes happen along the way.

Life is about success and failure.

Many failures need to take place when the blueprint is unavailable for guidance.

The best blueprint I see is when I become aware of who I am in this moment.

These snap shots add to being alive and using the proper impressions.

The art work is just a beautiful story:  the truth.

It is my pleasure to attend to both in my lifetime.

Better to bloom late than not at all!
